Contemplation of inner experiencing through movement, stillness and creative self-expression.
Active Self-Inquiry. Self-transcendence. Embodiment
DANCEmandala cultivates a transformative space and equips us with tools to help us understanding our sense of self. This involves building and refining these three elements, somatic awareness, mindful emotive expression, and positive intention. The DANCEmandala body pathway map serves as a guide, enabling us to integrate these elements as a foundational step toward expressing our authentic and creative selves. The methodology of DANCEmandala seeks to harmonize the layers of our being, facilitating an inner journey that revolves around the central channel—the spine. This approach support and encourage exploration of various dimensions of experience, spanning from the tangible aspects of the physical body to the most subtle realms of consciousness.
The aim of the practice
Awaken awareness, embody wisdom, and transcend beyond the illusions of self.
DANCEmandala’s method is informed by the principles of movement and stillness, layers of being, realms of consciousness, and the law of nature (Dhamma). We approach the self-evolution process by investigating the body, emotion, heart, spirit, and universal conciouness. In this, we gain tools for personal and collective healing and transformation.
The Modules of inquiry
Investigation of body-mind wisdom
DANCEmandala develops somatic awareness, receptivity, and insights through the cultivation of natural movement, stillness, and breath.
Creative process of healing and transformation
Moving to ‘unlearn’ old patterns of movement and limited expression brings energising experience of freedom and flowing creativity.
emerging space of connectedness and co-creation
DANCEmandala’s intelligent Body Pathway map guides us toward authenticity, flow, wise acceptance, joy, clarity and the experience of being in the present moment with connection and kindness.
awareness of unity, consciousness, and liberation
Practice with awareness, intention, and openness provide us with the truth of who we are and what we are. With this knowledge, we experience our earth’s body and the higher levels of understanding. We realize our own potential for true joy and peace.
